I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

I had to add another panel to the top, so it seems more convenient))) Adjust appearance of the panels at its discretion. Linux is good because it can be customized as you like.
